Rustic Apple Cobbler in a Cast Iron Skillet

I love cooking in Cast Iron. I have a great collection of Cast Iron Cookware and Accessories . This is a simple, rustic, down-home comfort food dessert! I included my recipe for Homemade Whipped Cream for serving.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
1 - 10" Cast Iron Skillet

Here's what you'll need:

1 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice
1 TBS Cornstarch

Cobbler Dough
1 C Flour
3 TBS Granulated Sugar, divided.
1 1/4 tsp Cinnamon, divided.
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
A pinch of Salt
1/4 +2 TBS Heavy Cream
3 TBS Butter, melted
1 tsp Vanilla

Filling Directions:
In the Skillet on the Stove, Medium Heat:

In the Skillet with the Apples:
Spoon the Dough randomly over the Apples. Cover most of the Apples leaving areas of Apples exposed. This is the Rustic process. Don't overthink it.

Sprinkle the Dough with the Sugar/Cinnamon mix.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
Remove the Skillet to a rack.
Serve Hot from the Skillet.

Serve with Homemade Whipped Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream.
